I'm in the process of migrating a few sites from WS2003/IIS6 to WS2008/IIS7. Have been reading online material all day about WS2008 and IIS7. Still don't feel any smarter.
I put a basic test asp.net website in wwwroot (default web site directory) just to see if it would work and it did.
I've setup my multiple sites following these instructions: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753729.aspx.
I want to see if they are setup properly, so I was trying to view them at http:// ip_address/ virtual_directory_name as described here for WS2003/IIS6: http:// forums.asp.net/t/1041300.aspx but I just get 404 errors back from IIS. (I'm a new user, so I had to break these links to get this to post)
It seems like I remember always creating virtual directories in IIS6. It's not clear to me whether you have to do this or if it's optional in IIS7 when creating a new site, so I tried it both ways, ie. creating a virtual directory under the new site or not creating the virtual directory. In either case, I still get the 404 errors.
Is it possible to view multiple sites on IIS7 via IPaddress/?? and if so, how?
